|Dreams That Money Can Buy - Hans Richter|
"Joe/Narcissus (Jack Bittner) is an ordinary man who has recently signed a complicated lease on a room. As he wonders how to pay the rent, he discovers that he can see the contents of his mind unfolding whilst looking into his eyes in the mirror. He realises that he can apply his gift to others ("If you can look inside yourself, you can look inside anyone!"), and sets up a business in his room, selling tailor-made dreams to a variety of frustrated and neurotic clients." -wikipedia IMDB page

|Episode 14: Mixing With The Mainstream - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
It's Episode 14 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. This week's lack of arthouse fodder leaves us stuck with middling multiplex fare, in the form of horrors and comedies. There's boysy humour abound in wedding farce "A Few Best Men," and the Sci-fi Ben Stiller-led "The Watch," plus we sample the natural in "The Myth of the American Sleepover" and the supernatural in the Sam Raimi-produced "The...

It’s Episode 61 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. After Pete’s whirlwind trip to Croatia we unite for cinematic visits to canyons, hills, and valleys.

|Episode 63: Puzzling Downfalls [Elysium; Lovelace; We're the Millers] - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
Peroni comes out to play in this weekâs episode, as Pete prepares for his impending flight to Venice by cracking open a bottle or two and lays into some usual suspects, including Nicolas Winding Refn and Kate Hudson. Cal saw Jennifer Aniston bare all in âWeâre the Millersâ and Amanda Seyfried get it all out in âLovelace,â and reveals a risquÃ© podcast game to test Peteâs knowledge of steamy film scenes...

It's Episode 59 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. We're going retro with this week's podcast, as we discuss the otherworldly prowess of Rita Hayworth in 1946 noir "Gilda," which Pete caught recently in all of its digitally restored glory. We also discuss two films deliberately harking back to the good old days, with silent fairy-tale "Blancanieves" facing off against Noah Baumbach's "Manhatt...

Itâs Episode 60 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. A peroni-less podcast sees Pete on his best behaviour when confronted with a listener question that dares to approach the subject of Keira Knightley (see, we will answer questions about literally anything!) and when forced to tackle âParis-Manhattan,â a French love letter to Woody Allen...

|Episode 107: The Four Percent Rule [Boyhood; Begin Again; How To Train Your Dragon 2] - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
This week we turn our attention to the upcoming Venice Film Festival, discussing the just-announced opening film for 2014, and the recent history of openers at the festival, which include two Steven Spielberg films and a derranged noir effort from Brian DePalma. Change is on the horizon, as the World Cup is over and Pete is now a home owner, but he still couldn't pluck up the courage to experience Keira Knightley's vocal tones in John Carney's "Begin Again," leaving Cal all alone with some awkwa...

|Episode 65: Preferential Pork [About Time; Blackfish; Any Day Now] - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
Festivals are on the brain this week, as we discuss the unexpected winners from Venice’s Bertolucci-headed jury, and what to expect from the London Film Festival in October. Cal saw a rare film outing for Alan Cumming, in gay adoption drama “Any Day Now,” and braced the bloody horror “No One Lives,” while Pete opted for killer whale documentary “Blackfish.” We have a review of the academic “Museum Hours,” and Richard Curtis’ “About Time,” which Cal only saw a quarter of, ...

|Episode 97: Continental Drift [Tracks; A Thousand Times Good Night; Blue Ruin] - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
Dubbed "Mr. D+" by Pete, Cal hopes for a better run of films this week, as our slate of continent-spanning sober dramas force us to tone things down a little. We review Erik Poppeâs âA Thousand Times Good Night,â starring the ever-exemplary Juliette Binoche, but is the moral-heavy family crisis at the filmâs centre worthy of her abilities? Itâs been eight months since Pete saw and liked John Curranâs âTracksâ at Venice, but does Cal feel the same way about the Aussie desert quest's quali...

|Episode 62: Nights to Forget [Bachelorette; 2 Guns; Chennai Express] - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
This week's episode features two epic tales of unfortunate evenings, as Pete takes the role of storyteller for a missed flight debacle and a drunken car-key faux pas. We give our verdict on a night from hell for the characters in wedding comedy "Bachelorette," and dig into the viability of the politics in Scandinavian prostitution procedural "Call Girl." Cal went to bat for the rampant action comedy "2 Guns," and Iain Softley's welcome return to directing, "Trap for Cinderella," while Pete (surp...

|Episode 104: Miscarriages of Justice [The Fault In Our Stars; Jersey Boys; Miss Violence] - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
Irini M. returns this week to help us discuss our favourite films and performances from 2014 so far, leading to a disagreement about Wes Anderson, yet more discussion of Xavier Dolan, and a fierce defence of a podcast fantasy favourite. The week's reviews see us flirt with both familiarity and contempt, as Cedric Klapisch's trilogy-capping "Chinese Puzzle" was finally released in the UK, while not all of us were happy about the Venice trophy haul of Greek family drama "Miss Violence." We tackle ...

|Episode 114: The Paris Clanger [Before I Go To Sleep; Life of Crime; They Came Together] - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
This week's episode is a tale of two halves, as Irini M. joins us once again, having spent the past week or so trawling across the lido of Venice. She brings us extensive coverage of the film festival, reviewing most of the competition line-up, and dishing her verdict on (among other things) why Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Birdman" left Italy empty-handed, and why Kim Ki-Duk's filmmaking style is getting rather insufferable...

|Episode 109: All About the Bantz [Hercules; Joe; The Films of 1977] - Calum Reed & Pete Sheppard|
This week we let the reviews take a back seat, as we focus on festival fare and classic cinema. Podcast stalwart Irini M. is back with us to discuss the line-up for this year's Venice Film Festival (which she will be attending) but abandons us after half an hour, forcing Pete to turn to poetry for consolation. We take (a lot of) time out to discuss the year that was 1977, talking about the year's critics prizes, Oscar winners, and our personal top tens, leading to digressions about a classic cat...
